* AnimationAgeGhetto: Much like their rivals Creator/HannaBarbera, Filmation is widely seen as contributing to the "cartoons are for kids" stigma, which persisted throughout late 20th century audiences due to their shoestring budgets as well as Lou Scheimer's own social conscience and feelings towards [[DomesticOnlyCartoon outsourcing]]. Subverted with both their [[WesternAnimation/StarTrekTheAnimatedSeries animated take on the Star Trek franchise]] and their pitch pilot "Hardchrome: The Last P.I.", which would have been their first adult animated series [[WhatCouldHaveBeen had it been picked up]].

* AwesomeArt: In spite of Filmation's actual... "[[LimitedAnimation animation]]", their backgrounds are often considered one of the (very few) things people praise them for.
* GrowingTheBeard: A decade after Filmation's closing, Scheimer was approached by an investment firm to produce ''WesternAnimation/RobinAndTheDreamweavers'' as a [[WhatCouldHaveBeen potential series]]. While Scheimer's social conscience is still evident in the overal moral [[note]] society and cute-looking animals teaming up against the evils of pornagraphy [[/note]], the film features a notably more [[DarkerAndEdgier darker tone]] along with more exploitative content. Bonus points to the animation for being [[AnimationBump well above]] [[NoBudget Scheimer's previous standards]].
** [[WesternAnimation/RobinAndTheDreamweavers Robin]] can also be considered a SpiritualSuccessor of sorts to Filmation considering Scheimer's involvement. Not to mention its cute animal side-characters and the film's overall [[AnAesop Aesop]].
